    TOYOTA LAND CRUISER POWERS UP FOR AUTUMN WITH NEW ENGINE AND EQUIPMENT FEATURES

    Sign in to follow this  

    Toyota’s mighty Land Cruiser gains even more power with the introduction of a new and efficient 2.8-litre engine, leading a series of performance and equipment updates for both the passenger and commercial versions of the SUV

    The new four-cylinder turbodiesel unit adds plenty of extra muscle to the world-famous Land Cruiser, delivering a maximum 201bhp/150kW at 3,000rpm and producing peak torque of 500Nm from 1,600rpm*. This marks an increase of 27bhp and 50Nm on the previous engine, gains that are reflected in a 2.8-second reduction in the 0-62mph time to less than 10 seconds*.

    This additional strength brings no penalty in terms of fuel economy or CO2 emissions. With the benefit of a stop-start system as standard, fuel consumption is in fact slightly improved.

    The engine meets the UK’s RDE2 (Real Driving Emissions) standard, so qualifies for a lower Vehicle Excise Duty charge – down by £325 in the first year compared to the current Land Cruiser.

    New grade structure

    The Land Cruiser line-up now offers two equipment grades, in line with customer preferences.

    The Active grade is the new entry point to the range, available in three and five-door formats and with five or seven seats.

    The specification gains wireless smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard, together with an improved multimedia system. Operated via an eight-inch touchscreen, this benefits from faster software and command response and offers a customisable home screen so that owners can prioritise their most frequently accessed functions.

    The Active grade’s established features include 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control air conditioning, smart entry and push-button start, roof rails and heated power door mirrors.

    At the top of the range, the seven-seat Invincible also adopts the smartphone integration package and is newly available with an optional Black Pack. Customers who opt for black leather upholstery can also specify an all-black exterior, including the front grille, door mirror casings, rear light surrounds, side mouldings and rear garnish, plus clear lenses for the rear light clusters. The look is carried through to the cabin with black finish for the centre console and transmission tunnel. Black alloy wheels can also be specified, as an additional option.

    The Invincible comes with a comprehensive, top-quality specification including systems to tackle the demands of different off-road conditions. Multi-Terrain Select, a rear differential lock, centre Torsen limited-slip differential and Crawl Control are all part of the technically advanced suite of control functions, plus Adaptive Variable Suspension with electronically modulated rear air suspension.

    While being able to deal with challenging conditions, the Land Cruiser Invincible also offers a wealth of comfort and convenience features, including triple-zone climate control, power steering column and front seat adjustment, heated and ventilated front seats, heated second row seats, leather upholstery, multi-view monitor, 14-speaker JBL Synthesis premium audio system, LED headlights, 19-inch alloys, rear privacy glass and illuminated side steps.

    Upgraded Toyota Safety Sense

    The Land Cruiser Invincible is equipped as standard with Toyota Safety Sense, benefiting from system upgrades and additional functions. The Pre-Collision System gains the ability to detect pedestrians and, in daylight driving, cyclists. The intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control improves safety while also reducing the burden on the driver, and the addition of Lane Trace Assist provides automatic assistance to keep the vehicle positioned within its traffic lane.

    Land Cruiser Commercial

    The Land Cruiser Commercial retains its existing line-up of short and long-wheelbase versions (three and five-door) in Utility and Active trims. They both adopt the new engine and the Active grade gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    The new Land Cruiser range is on sale now with first deliveries of the passenger models from October, followed by the Commercial versions later in the autumn. All new vehicles come with Toyota’s five-year/100,000-mile warranty.
